Although Kim Kardashian West is no stranger to beauty modifications, the reality star knows first-hand that you might want to think twice before making a permanent change. Mrs. West recently revealed on her subscription-based blog that she once had her baby hairs laser-removed from her hairline and neck because "the peach fuzz was causing breakouts" and "every photographer would Photoshop them out anyway."
The Calabasas-based celeb goes on to say that she semi-regrets the procedure and urges her fans to keep their baby hairs if they. "I think they look youthful! So ladies, you can always laser your hairline, but I miss mine."
Lesson of the day: not all treatments are worth splurging on.
